Best of Airbnb: Klickitat Treehouse Near Columbia River Gorge

One of the best ways to experience a true Pacific Northwest vibe during your travels is to stay in a treehouse with a perfect mix of rustic authenticity and modern comforts. This 500-square-foot-treehouse supported by Douglas fir trees is a great example of this vibe when you want to be in the Columbia River Gorge area. From the Klickitat Treehouse, you’ll have views of Mount Adams and be 20 feet above the ground during your unique Airbnb stay.

The Klickitat Treehouse has floor-to-ceiling windows to help you enjoy the views from the inside and lots of amenities, such as heat, A/C, a kitchen, and both indoor and outdoor showers. Up to six people can sleep in this treehouse comfortably because there is a queen-size bed in one bedroom and two queen beds in the other bedroom. But if you want to also rent the host’s Cedar Shack Tiny House, you can accommodate a group of up to eight people on the property. That additional tiny cabin is just 250 feet from this treehouse and comes with a lofted queen-size bed for extra travel companions.

In the living room, you’ll find a leather couch, books, games, and a coffee table. Sit back and relax in a space with lots of natural light, neutral palettes, clean lines, and simple touches to help you feel at home. There are sliding glass doors off the living room that lead out to the deck, which has a propane grill, patio table, and Adirondack chairs. Meanwhile, guests can prepare their own meals in the stocked kitchen with a mini-fridge, full oven, and stovetop. If you don’t feel like cooking, there are plenty of great restaurants, breweries, and wineries just a short drive away.

Seasonal offerings at the treehouse include the outdoor hot shower to get clean while looking up at the trees and fire pit just a short walk down the steps and across a bridge. There are 15 wooded acres at the property, which you can explore on the winding trail. Although you’ll have plenty of space to roam and privacy, neighbors do live close by, so you’ll need to adhere to quiet hours at 10pm.

This is an ideal treehouse getaway for travelers looking to disconnect from technology because there is no Wi-Fi and poor cell service. There are also strict burn ban policies to follow for this property to prevent potential wildfires. The treehouse is open year-round, but you will want a 4WD/AWD vehicle, snow tires, and tire chains if you’re staying here in the winter. You’ll be at 1,600 elevation with a definite possibility of snow between December and March.

Such a cool location for all seasons

Book this Airbnb property to immerse yourself in the natural world without really “roughing it” much at all. The location is a ten-minute drive from White Salmon and a 20-minute drive from Hood River. It’s a central location when you want to get out for some outdoor recreation, such as mountain biking, kiteboarding, windsurfing, whitewater rafting, hiking, skiing, and snowboarding.
